I have been a member of his board since around 2002 or '03, and I don't think we ever had this topic discussed before! So, let me start this one now! [Cool]

Recently, I read somewhere that the comic strip "Cathy", which began 34 years ago, will be ending early next month. The final edition will be on Sunday, October 3rd!

It wasn't one of my own personal faves, but it got me thinking: which newspaper comic strips did you read/enjoy during the 1980's?

It could be anything that you read back in the 80's, even if the strip first came out in earlier decades (example: "Peanuts" debuted in the early-1950's). And I don't mean cartoons on TV, or comic books. Just newspaper comics, or as an earlier generation used to call it, "the funnies".

And with daily metropolitan newspapers gradually going out of business, I am a bit worried about the future of some comic strips. Sure, many comic strips have their own websites. But to me, it's just not the same!

So, which ones did you read back then?

I remember Stan Drake´s The Heart of Juliet Jones, Lee Falk´s Phantom, Peanuts and Garfield.

I read mostly comic books in the 80s but these four come to mind.

I'll have to throw 'Beezer' and 'Buster' onto Willy's list, too.

Single strips? 'Andy Capp' and 'The Perishers'. Good stuff.

As a child in the 80s, I loved Garfield, The Far Side, and Peanuts, in that order. Garfield's cynicism and abuse of Odie provided many laughs. The Far Side was hilariously smart. Peanuts was a little tame but had the best cast of characters and excellent stories.
